Sights & Sounds
Sometimes a nice walk is all you need to wash away the aches and pains from the previous evening's excesses, and Ljubljana's gorgeous Tivoli Park is the perfect place to do just that. It's a real oasis of nature and visitors are often struck by how peaceful the park's atmosphere is. With winding paths and a sea of green grass all around it's easy to get lost here, and we're inclined to think that's a good thing.
Ljubljana's youthful fashionistas all like to party at Klub Cirkus. This party-spot is a fiesta of good drinks, good music and good times. It's the biggest club in the city and you'll more than likely find yourselves throwing shapes on the dance floor well into the small hours.
Club Palatium is seriously funky and plays host to some of the city's best DJs as well as exciting up-and-coming music acts with not one, but two floors of partying madness!

Top of the Shops
Ljubljana is so done with communism, and the visually arresting fashion you'll see on the streets and indeed in stores totally reflects that. The girls in Slovenia have a real eye for style and they know a bargain when they see one - which is probably why this city is full of vintage stores. Retro-chic is in fashion across the mainland at the moment and if you're going to dress for the town, you need to give your wardrobe a blast from the past!
Divas Preloved - So, while this vintage shop doesn't have the greatest name, there's plenty of stylish tops and dresses from yesteryear on display that would look great in anybody's wardrobe, as well as designer goods at cut-prices!
Where? Gosposka ulica 3, Ljubljana
Gvant - This beautifully bijou boutique is chock full of cute clothes that aren't quite ready for retirement - if you've ever seen some of your Gran's old clothes and thought they still looked great, then this is for you!
Where? BTC City, Dvorana 3, Ljubljana
Galerija Emporium - Unless you're looking to completely break the bank, you're probably better off resisting a purchase in this luxury department store. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't window shop - at least you can pretend you can afford these stunning wears!
Where? Presernov trg 4b, 1000, Ljubljana
Girls About Town - Getting around Ljubljana...
Ljubljana deserves to be explored on foot, but we understand that a long day in the city, whether you're sightseeing or shopping can actually be seriously tiring! It's times like these where you'll want to make the most of Ljubljana's excellent bus network. Most buses start as early as 3:30am and finish as late as 10:30pm, and you can buy an Urbana card that'll store cash for quick use on the bus that'll save you from foraging for coins in your purses.
Although, soaring through the streets on a Public Bike makes for a great mode of transport too!
So you've decided to take your bunch of giggling girls on tour, but what kind of hen party frolics can you expect in Ljubljana?
